The New Caldera Lakes Album (Rough Cut) by Caldera Lakes

Album Description

Eva and Brittany
Released:2009
GENRE:
Length:00:48:38

Woolgathering vocal melodies hover foundationless over sheets of noise, drone and buzz. You get scared, though you're oddly comforted at the same time. Still, it feels better with that night-light on. You hear what might be footsteps, or bells, or someone sawing sheet metal. Such is the music of Caldera Lakes.

The duo of Married in Berdichev (aka Brittany Gould) and Kevin Shields(aka Eva Aguila) were generous enough to share this rough cut of their newest album (which will eventually reappear as a proper release in edited form) with My Castle of Quiet and WFMU (four of these six tracks premiered on my show September 2nd.)

The chaotic, sonic hailstorm conjured up by artists like Merzbow or Masonna meets the buoyant-but-bent psychedelia ofAzalia Snail, or Fifty Foot Hose, in these enjoyable recordings. The epic closer, "Arctic Ghost," is especially magnificent. Enjoy.

I'm reading the 1999 book The Plutonium FIles now, about the America's secret tests on it's citizens during the first 40 years it's nuke program. Scary downer stuff. This music is the perfect soundtrack by which to read about a "plutonium cocktail formulated to deposit in the bone when injected", or those early "criticality accidents" with blue halos and nanosecond exposures that condemned the exposed to grisly deaths (who were of course snapped up by the nuclear scientists as a chance to examine radiation poisoning without the "confounding effects of burn and blast"), or about unsuspecting people chosen as the subject of secret experiments, often for no other reason than that they presented themselves trustingly at the wrong time and place to the wrong people, i.e. physicians and scientists in the atomic energy field. I will be listening to these tracks as I progress through this classic "so horrific you can't turn away" read. Thanks.
